Food and Travel Award
We are the winner!!!! Fattoria del Colle in Tuscany has received the Food and Travel Award as country inn of the year 2020 on October 3nd at San Barbato Resort Spa&Golf
A great prize for Fattoria del Colle from Food and Travel, an international magazine able to cater for the more demanding tourists and to help them discover the food and wine excellencies around the world.
FATTORIA DEL COLLE A PRIZE FOR THE MOST AUTHENTIC TUSCANY
The 2020 award as best Italian agriturismo rewards Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s choices in favour of the re-proposed “philological” of rural civilization. A choice that regards apartments furnished with antiques, the serving of traditional home made dishes in the restaurant, vegetables from the vegetable garden … and the guided tours that teach Tuscan history or the nature trail to learn all the vine’s secrets. Fattoria del Colle has a soul and an authenticity that are very strong; they are the result of courageous and non conformist choices. This is what distinguishes the agriturismo awarded by Food and Travel, from resorts, where the renovations have adapted the original characters.
Donatella Cinelli Colombini, once ex art historian and today success wine producer has tenaciously wanted to transform Fattoria del Colle into a wine destination able to give touching and authentic experiences which impart to guests the true spirit of the Tuscan countryside. This ward states that she has succeeded.
